Childhood cancers associated with parental occupational exposures

Gold EB, Sever LE

Occup Med. 1994. 9(3):495-539.

The authors describe the latest findings in this area of research and look at the methodologic concerns that arise and how they affect the derivation of causal inferences from such studies.
